15 Riesling

A youthful wine exhibiting fresh lime, citrus and green apple characteristics with hints of tropical fruits. It’s invigorating acidity supports the lively and crisp structure of the wine presenting floral notes and a strikingly long finish on the palate. Like its predecessors this wine will reward cellaring for the next 4 to 6 years.

92 POINTS – Bob Campbell MW, BobCampbell.nz, Jan 2016
“A tangy, delicately succulent Riesling, with flavours suggesting lime juice, pineapple, lemon blossom and a hint of bush honey. Lovely sweet/sour tension, good concentration and a lingering finish.”
4 STARS - Michael Cooper, Michael Cooper’s Buyer’s Guide 2016
“This wine is consistently good and bargain-priced. The 2015 vintage (**) is an off-dry style (7 grams/litre of residual sugar), light lemon/green, with mouth filling body and strong, ripe lemon/lime flavours, with a hint of passionfruit. Lively and tangy, it's enjoyable young, but also worth cellaring.”

REVIEW - Peter Saunders, Independent Wine Critic and Writer, Aug 2015
“Near dry, firmly spined and very appealing. A wine with its apple tones denies the usual pear comparison with this variety, and goes beyond expectations with its floral nose and lifted palate aromatics. Lots of life, a clean fresh wine with a lovely fruit statement. Very enjoyable now, into 2018.”
